Wednesday, October 26, 2011 Partners with the Monaco Media Forum

The Monaco Media Forum event, hosted by HSH Prince Albert II himself, is an invite only conference that brings together the crème de la crème of leaders in new and traditional media to discuss emerging opportunities in technology, distribution in content and the "mediascape" in a global context.

This year's focus at the MMF is "Screen Wars", a discussion about television and the point of inception as the internet and new media, broadcast and print communications begin to collide.

We are honored to be invited back by PublicisLive, the forum's producer, and look forward to keeping attendees and media enthusiasts up to date with fresh event news on the official embedded on the Monaco Media Forum home page.

Join the conversation during the event by tweeting with the event tag #MonacoMediaFrm and be sure to drop us a line if you are in Monaco for the event. You can reach us @smallrivers or @edouardlambelet.

Publish it! A new way to publish articles from anywhere on the web

We've made content curation even easier for you!

This nifty new tool enables publishers to instantly add any article, video or image to a current paper edition and automatically add new content from that same source to future editions the next time content is available!

Using "Publish it" is a breeze to install and works with all major browsers. Just drag and drop the icon to your Bookmarks Bar and the next time you come across content of interest give it a click, and we'll take care of the rest.

We think this is a really cool tool that's going to make your job as publisher even easier. So go ahead - drag, drop and publish your favorite content, now! and Penn State University: Reinventing The Lesson Plan

It's always nice to hear when you are helping to make a difference. So this past week we felt really great when we received a note from publisher, Kate Morgan, updating us on the excitement around her project in the classroom at Penn State University.

Kate discovered this past summer and began using the service in her classroom in September. The project has not only been a great success with her students, but also co-workers.

What started as a project for one classroom is quickly turning into a reference for social media in the classroom. In passing peers refer to her work as "The Morgan Methodology" which is becoming the Lehigh Valley campus vernacular for "curating tweets using". They are curious to know how they can develop their own lesson plans to include more of the same in their classrooms. 

Educator Sir Ken Robinson speaks passionately about the need to re-invent education. He believes that a re-thinking of education is necessary to cultivate the creativity needed for our children to succeed in the future. Perhaps real time communication and curation projects such as Kate's Class Matters The Weekly Vibe or one of the other numerous educational Paper.lis that can be read on the newsstand will be a part of that solution.
